We'll Continue To Prioritize Development of Education Sector

“Education is not just a pillar in one of our THEMES agenda, it’s one of the dividends of democracy and one of the cardinal objectives of our administration. We see it as one of the tools that can end poverty in our system.

We are not paying lip service to education, we are taking it seriously. Education has continued to receive an increased budget in our administration. I am happy this Summit will be a platform where we can digest what we are presently doing”

EKOEXCEL: Playing a Pivotal Role in Fostering Inclusion for the Nigerian Child

Unlike the Children’s Day celebration observed in Nigeria on May 29th every year, World Children’s Day is marked every November 20 as an international observance that United Nations member countries use to promote and celebrate children’s rights. Established by the UN in 1954, the theme of this year’s celebration, ‘Equality and Inclusion, for every child’, is particularly instructive for Nigerian children who suffer discrimination and exclusion.

Commendably, the Lagos State Government is successfully fostering inclusion for every child. In his quest to give Lagos pupils education relevant to the 21st century and accessible to all, Governor Sanwo-Olu  inaugurated the EKOEXCEL programme under the supervision of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB) in 2019. 

Using innovative digital learning solutions, the initiative has led to a radical transformation of public primary schools in the state. EKOEXCEL has recorded tangible gains among teachers and pupils, leading to improved learning outcomes for pupils and more professional teachers.

A compelling case of inclusion in Lagos State public primary schools is the case of a teen boy called Segun Borno, who was saved from the rigours of hawking perishable goods on the streets of Lagos by LASUBEB at one of its pupil enrollment road shows. He has since ben enrolled into a lagos State public primary school and now aspires to be a lawyer.
